Updated: May 22, 2013

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

A vendor invoice for a purchase order is an invoice that is attached to a purchase order. It contains a header and one or more lines for items or services. A vendor invoice finishes the purchase order, product receipt, and vendor invoice cycle. You can also enter vendor invoices that are not associated with purchase orders.

NoteNote

(FRA) To create or review mandats and bordereaux de mandat related to a vendor invoice, see (FRA) Key tasks: Mandats de paiement and bordereaux de mandat (Public sector).

You can save invoices in the Vendor invoice form. You might have to do this if you are interrupted when you are entering data, or if you have to verify information about the invoice before you post it. You can also put invoices on hold in the Vendor invoice form.

NoteNote

You cannot post invoices that are on hold.

  1. Click Accounts payable > Common > Vendor invoices > Open vendor invoices.

  2. On the Action Pane, click Invoice > Vendor invoice. The Vendor invoice form opens.

  3. Enter or select an invoice account. This is the vendor account for the vendor that sent the invoice.

  4. Enter the invoice number.

  5. On the Action Pane, click Retrieve purchase orders. Select the Include check box for one or more purchase orders or purchase order lines, and then click OK.

  6. At the top of the form, in the Default quantity for lines field, select the type of quantity to update.

    • Receive now quantity – Use for partial shipments. The default value in the Quantity field is from the Receive now quantity field on the purchase order.

    • Ordered quantity – Use for complete shipments. The default value in the Quantity field is from the Ordered quantity field on the purchase order.

    • Registered quantity – Use if the item requires registration, as specified in the Item model groups form. The default value in the Quantity field is the physical update quantity that has been registered.

    • Product receipt quantity – Use if a product receipt has already been received for the order. The default value in the Quantity field is from the total quantity of available product receipts.

    • Registered quantity and services – Use if quantities have been registered in arrival journals for stocked items or items that are not stocked. This option also includes services, regardless of whether they are registered.

  7. In the Lines grid, select an invoice line and make changes, as needed. For example, if you ordered 10 items but the invoice is for only 5 items, you might change the value in the Quantity field to 5.

  8. Review the information on the Line details FastTab and make changes, as needed.

  9. Repeat steps 7 and 8 for the remaining lines on the invoice.

  10. If your legal entity uses invoice matching, on the Vendor invoice header FastTab, view the Match variance field. An exclamation mark indicates that a matching discrepancy exists for one or more types of invoice matching. A check mark indicates that all invoice matching variances are within acceptable tolerances.

  11. To save the invoice without posting it, close the form. The invoice status changes from New to Pending. You can view the invoice on the Pending vendor invoices list page.

You can enter and save information for vendor invoices, and you can match invoice lines to product receipt lines. You can also match partial quantities for a line, if you have to.

You can create a vendor invoice based on the product receipt line items that have been received to date, even if all the items for a particular purchase order have not yet been received. You might do this, for example, if a vendor sends one invoice per month that covers all of the deliveries that the vendor ships during that month. Each product receipt represents a partial or complete delivery of the items on the purchase order.

When you post the invoice, the Invoice remainder quantity for each item is updated with the total of the received quantities from the selected product receipts. If both the Invoice remainder quantity and the Deliver remainder quantity for all items on the purchase order are zero, the status of the purchase order changes to Invoiced. If the Invoice remainder quantity is not zero, the status of the purchase order is unchanged and additional invoices can be entered for it.

This procedure assumes that at least one product receipt has been posted for the purchase order. The vendor invoice is based on these product receipts and reflects the quantities from them. The financial information for the invoice is based on the information that is entered when you post the invoice.

  1. Click Accounts payable > Common > Vendor invoices > Open vendor invoices.

  2. On the Action Pane, click Invoice > Vendor invoice. The Vendor invoice form opens.

  3. In the Default quantity for lines field, select the type of quantity to update.

  4. Enter or select an invoice account. This is the account for the vendor that sent the invoice.

  5. Enter the invoice number.

  6. On the Action Pane, click Match product receipts. Alternatively, in the Lines grid, click Invoice line > Match product receipts.

  7. In the Match product receipts to invoice form, select the Match check box for the product receipts to match with the invoice line items. Alternatively, you can click Select all lines or Select all product receipts to match all product receipts to the invoice.

  8. Optional: To match a partial quantity, enter a quantity in the Product receipt quantity to match field.

  9. Click OK to close the Match product receipts to invoice form and return to the Vendor invoice form.

  10. To save the invoice without posting it, select the On hold check box on the Vendor invoice header FastTab.

    To post the invoice and close the form, on the Action Pane, click Post, and then click Post in the form that is displayed.

  11. Close the form.
